On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act. The law puts in place comprehensive health insurance reforms that will roll out over four years and beyond. Certain key provisions within the law are designed to help children and families by providing free preventive services, extending coverage for young adults, and prohibiting the denial of coverage of children under the age of 19 with pre-existing conditions.
